Mason really likes Nutri-Grain bars for breakfast. So I thought that they seemed easy enough to make. This was not true.
I used the recipe found here.
I would recommend reducing the juice by half. Also, get the bottom layer as thin as possible to make this more like Nutri-Grain bars than a baked dish. I failed with this, which is why the top is so sparse. Apple butter worked really well. I didn’t have an 8×12 pan or whatever it called for, but a 9×9 worked just fine.
I also attempted to modify the recipe slightly and make my own filling with peach and raspberries smashed up. This failed. The filling was too watery, so there wasn’t a “jelly filling” like in a Nutri-Grain bar.
In the end, Mason chose a Pop-Tart for snack. Fail.
